The Patek Philippe Celestial Grand Complications is a watch of great value that was first introduced at the 2002 Basel Fair. The watch is set to depict the night sky exactly as it appears over Geneva. A watch with great design and an amazing potential for any wearer, the Patek Philippe Celestial Grand Complications is a watch like no other. It was made to indicate the moon phase but also has an astronomical display that uses a system made to reproduce the relationship between the various celestial bodies during different times. It definitely doesn’t get better than this. Obviously the watch is considered incredibly high end, especially among other fashionable watches made by popular brands.
With such a beautiful micro cosmos incorporated the watch comes with other embellishments that justify its high price. The case is made with 18k white gold with a size of 43 mm and 10 mm thick – a good size both for those with smaller wrists and those with bigger wrists. You will also notice that the case sides are embossed with the Calatrava Cross, a very beautiful detail that gives this watch an authentic touch. The dial is made with a beautiful deep blue color with an elliptical window that marks the cardinal directions for orienting celestial display. The skeletonized Feuille style hands shouldn’t go unnoticed because they give the watch a lot of grace.
The front and back has sapphire crystal so you can see the mechanism behind this great watch. It has 2 crowns, one at 2 o’clock which sets the time and winds the watch and the other at 4 o’clock which is used to set the astronomical display. The case comes with roman numbers giving the watch that classy feel a lot of formal watches have; also notable is the fact that every tooth on the gear wheel has been hand polished making such craftsmanship hard to find in the horology world.
Stamped with the Geneva seal and wrapped up in a high end case ready for its owner, the watch is a beautiful gift for someone you love or a great way to spoil yourself.
